Cristom Vineyards

Salem, Oregon

  • Founded by Paul and Eileen Gerrie in 1992, first estate-grown wine released 1994
  • Case Production: approx. 19,000 per year
  • “Elegant, dynamic wines, recognized by their hallmark style of whole-cluster fermentation by native yeasts.”
  • Winemaker Steve Doerner graduated from UC Davis, and studied under Burgundy’s Jacques Seysses of Domaine Dujac, before working for 14 years at Calera, where he crafted the famous Pinot Noir written about in “The Heartbreak Grape” by Marq De Villiers.

“Cristom Vineyards hangs its hat on a well earned reputation for making exceptional Pinot Noir.  Their rich track record of excellence is the result of a twenty-year collaboration between three men – an engineer, a biochemist and a farmer – who are, first and foremost, stewards of the land.  Strengthened by an independent and pragmatic spirit and the belief that great wine begins in the vineyard, their partnership illustrates the unique blend of tradition, modernity and finesse that defines Cristom’s Wines.    

Our estate vineyards are certified sustainable LIVE (Low Input Viticulture and Enology), and have been since 2007. The LIVE designation helps remind us to be consciously aware of the long-term health, viability and fertility of the entire property, not just the land under vine. We’re proud of our commitment. In the vineyard, we work tirelessly to reduce or eliminate synthetic fertilizers, pesticides and fungicides. We protect natural our resources including energy, water, soil, and wildlife habitats. We particularly care about the ecological health of Oregon’s watershed, and work with LIVE and Salmon Safe to promote responsible farming practices and help keep our rivers and streams ecologically sound.

Cristom wines are made using responsible viticultural and enological practices. We’re really proud of that.”
